The new issue of BluePrintReview is out, and my article The Season's Solace is included in it! Here's a note from the editor:
"the new issue of blueprintreview is online!
#19: beyond the silence
the absence of sound. refusal or failure to speak out. a period of time without speech or noise.
and beyond the silence?
unified fields . and voids. a terrible beauty. and a claustrophobic little boy. flowers. and a meeting with Oba-chan. the shape of grief. and the way it should be. the season's solace. and rain, rain...
yes, this one is a vast issue, both in theme and in size. it also marks a new level: again, there was a new peek of submissions. plus, blueprintreview was listed as one of the 100 favorite online journals by the Women's Poetry Listserv. parallel to that, i received my first hate-mail. (karmic balance, i guess).
here the shortcut beyond the silence: blueprintreview #19
and here the quick guide to the issue:
to start the silence, erase all the sacred texts.
to end it, remember the things you know by heart.
thanks so much for adding your tune to this issue ~
have a beautiful, inspired and magic year 2009 ~
